The administration of Westminster pensions is undertaken by the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA). The LPFA is the largest Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) provider in London and one of the largest in the UK. LPFA has its own pensions fund and also assists other local authorities with all aspects of LGPS administration. The LPFA undertakes the administration for Hertfordshire County Council and also four London Boroughs, including Westminster City Council.
The LPFA’s experienced pensions specialists deliver a range of services to support Westminster’s pension administration function. Services include:
• Calculations and payments due as a result of rights arising from the LGPS
• Updating member’s pension records when notified of changes e.g. joining the scheme, changing hours or leaving the scheme
• Processing the pensions payroll on a monthly basis
The LPFA also provides effective communications on behalf of Westminster to help to deliver often complex pensions issues in a clear and concise way. Communications range from Annual Benefit Statements to Employer Newsletters; from scheme guides and factsheets to an up-to-date website specific to Westminster. Additionally our online member self-service system allows members to view personal and financial information about their pension securely.
